lyrics

Thomas clocks off work on a Friday
Catches the last bus home
He keeps his head low
He’s a volcano
Ready to explode

A young woman sits beside him
She’s covered up her face
Takes out his iPhone
He sneaks a photo
And posts it to his page

Do you know
Somebody knows
The man who is otherwise known
As Thomas the Troll

He says goodnight to his mother
Then he turns out the light
Checks the router
Turns on the computer
And settles down for the night

He begins with the liberals
Preachy avant-garde
Lefty hippies radical celebrities
Part of his twisted repertoire

Do you know
Somebody knows
The man who is otherwise known
As Thomas the Troll

He’s off to buy the Mail on Sunday
And as he enters the store
He sees me smiling I’m smiling at him
He turns for the door

But now I’m right beside him
I’m holding out my tin
A small donation refugee children
Thomas puts some money in

Do you know
Somebody knows
The man who is otherwise known
As Thomas the Troll

Thomas clocks off work on a Friday
Catches the last bus home
The isolation, realisation
He died a long a time ago
